Gaithersburg was eliminated from the postseason while the Aces advanced to the double elimination bracket, where they’ll face the league-champion Bethesda Big Train Tuesday night.

While the Aces banged out 12 hits as a team, with eight of nine starters chipping in, their only offense through most of the game came on the long ball. Ryan Lukach (University of Hartford) opened the scoring in the playoffs with a solo home run to left center field in the second inning to give the Aces a 1-0 lead.

The Cal Ripken League playoffs get underway Monday night as the Aces visit the Gaithersburg Giants at 7 p.m. Both teams finished the regular season with identical 23-17 records, but because Gaithersburg won the season series with Alexandria, the Giants earned the #4 seed and a home game while the Aces dropped to the #5 seed.

Gaithersburg rolls into the playoffs with a five-game winning streak, and wins in nine of the final 10 games. They swept two doubleheaders over the final three days of the regular season, one against the Baltimore Redbirds and the other against the Herndon Braves, to rise from the cusp of playoff position to the #4 seed.

This game is a single elimination format play-in game before the double-elimination tournament begins Tuesday. The winner of the Aces and Giants would play either the #1 seed Bethesda Big Train or #2 seed Baltimore Redbirds. The loser’s season comes to an end.
